Massive nose. Huge berry fruit. Dark olive. Cinnamon spice. Incense. Really involved and dense nose with a sense of creaminess. Wow, what olive. Really jumps out. Massive palate but also so refined and elegant. Superb aromas after some air. Dark berry fruit, sweet and substantial tannins. Fresh and juicy but also big, imposing and closed. But it is all there. Not quite showing granite yet. — 7 days ago

A bit less together than the last bottle we had. Looking forward to trying in a few years. Still nice with some cassoulet on a cold rainy Sunday in dear old nyc. — 13 days ago

Les Petits Monts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Thanksgiving wine #3. This was firing on all cylinders, especially the nose. So many aromatic layers & textures to explore. Elegant and supple on the palate with a brilliant balance between freshness and textural depth. Absolutely beautiful. — a day ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Just received, pop and pour just to taste one, rich, lush and powerful, with time in the glass and a harsh decant, it opens beautifully to aromas of Syrah such as pepper, violets and that incredible floral scent, very nice even if way too young and with the oak that is a little too present for now. 91-92 for the potential

Dès réception, j’en ouvre une, bien que beaucoup trop jeune. C’est très bon malgré tout, très Syrah après un peu d’air et un coup de carafe sans ménagement, violettes et poivre. Certes le bois est très présent pour l’instant. Puissant et structuré, texture riche, superbe potentiel, content d’en avoir accumulé plusieurs. 91-92+ pour le potentiel.

Cuvée Ro-Rée St. Joseph Syrah 2017

The nose is all blackberry, pepper and a bit of a mineral thing like gun powder. The palate is delicious. Strong acid drive, nice matter, glorious fruit all along, good grip, lively tannins spicing up things a bit, a very wide and impressive mid palate and a very long peppery, fruity finish with a tiny bit of bitterness, just enough to make it very good. This delivers, time and time again — 18 days ago

Offerus Saint-Joseph Syrah 2017

Quite nice. Dark fruits. More accessible - even with limited air - than I expected. Still a good bit of freshness / refreshing acidity. At $26 a good value. Tasty. — 3 days ago

Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

My second time trying this ‘Lieu-Dit’ Saint-Joseph bottling by northern Rhône powerhouse Guigal, from the exceptional 2015 vintage. It is a better wine than it was in August last year (at which point it was a little closed down). Frankly, it is a brilliant wine from this lesser appellation that, in short, is a full-blooded expression of Syrah with bags of intent.

Intense aromatics, a medley of plum, hoisin, fig compote, leather and black pepper. The palate is incredibly rich and saturated, packed full of blackberry, cranberry, an umami quality, jamon iberico and aged beef. Tannins and acidity are both high but are perfectly poised in harmony with the fruit. The finish is impressively long, and moreish. In a terrific spot now at five years but this should continue to sing in a decade. Really a thoroughly enjoyable northern Rhône.
